Reflexology is based on the principle of reflex points on the feet that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body. The reflexes on our feet and hands act as mirror images of the body. For example, the toes represent the head and the ball of the foot represents the chest and lung region. Mental and physical tension is released, a state of relaxation is induced and energy and vitality abound. The healing art of reflexology brings about the restoration of harmony and optimum health.
